Question about 2001 Nissan Maxima

Rattling sound 0-20 mph comes and goes, 6 disc cd changer skips

I hope someone can give me some advice I would really appreciate it. I have a 2001 Nissan Maxima GLE I just recently purchased used with less than 30,000 miles on it. I really love it except recently I have had a few problems. First one is massive smoke that was coming out from the exhaust pipes when I start up usually when cold, but I think that was because I was wasn't using premium gas. The last fill up I bought the premium gas and didn't notice such extensive smoke.

Second, I notice a rattling sound when I am stopped then accelerate on the gas ever so slightly. After I go over about 20 mph the rattling sound ceases. Then today my service engine soon light came on, on the way home. What could this be?

Third, my 6 disc cd changer skips erractically. Does it need to be cleaned or something? Bought a brand new cd put it in there and plays ok the first couple of minutes then all of a sudden starts skipping like crazy on me. ????? Please help, thanks.

Howdy,
the rattling sounds like its the hydrolic lifters (tappets or cam followers called also) not really a hard job just a pain cause you've to strip the engine to pieces to do. Its very time consuming so unless you've some experience i'd place this in the hands of an experienced mechanic. This should also stop the smoke problem.

The engine service light is on a timer from service to service so thats nothing to do with it.

The cd player your right about it just need the lazer llens cleaned. You can buy a cd cleaner kit for cheap in any music/record store.

Hope this helps if not let me know and I'll try and find the solution

Cheers

What makes the cd skip after about 45 to 60 seconds into a song each dc in each slot does it, than a message CD ERROR lights up in the dash how do i fix this its the origional cd player in trunk &am


sounds to me like the lens assembly can't move freely all the way on the slider when reading discs. This will require you to open the cd changer unit completely to get to the lens assembly. When you get to it, check if there is anything jamming the lens from moving and the sliders, like part number labels that came unglued, screws that fell out, plastic pieces that broke, or even just leaves and branches and such. If everything is clear, then probably the sliders just need some oil and because of lack of lubrication, the lens assembly jams. Just regular sewing machine or electric motor oil will do the job quite nicely. If you don't feel like opening it yourself, you can always bring it to an electronics repair store to have it fixed. Other than that the only option would be to change the cd changer unit altogether. Hope this helps :)

Possible fault in the optical head unit. You can remove and clean the lens eye to have a final word.
If the loading is happening without the dettecction or the rotation of the disc ,this is for a sure a possibility.
I would advice that you remove the set clean up , check on the connectors and reset.
If fault repeats get opinion before changing the head unit.
